Trail Riding in Ethiopia – Pinkbike

EWhile many may equate Ethiopia with the treacherous famines that struck the country during the 80’s and 90’s, and horrible Bob Geldof songs, today the reality is somewhat different. Ethiopia is a dynamic, fast growing country that has become a stable regional hub in an area all too often characterized by violence and conflict. Addis Ababa, the capital is a city on the move with building going on everywhere, including a new rapid transport system. The city lies at 2400m and is surrounded by mountains, often full of Eucalyptus trees. For an Aussie such as myself, that makes riding in Ethiopia somewhat similar to riding at home, especially with the beautiful scent of Eucalyptus all the time. What many don’t know is that Addis Ababa and the surrounding mountains are a mountain biker’s paradise. After hundreds of years of people trudging up and down the local hills they are simply full of trails.
